(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Lucy :)


Meet our adorable and adoptable friend, Lucy. Adjusting to life at the shelter hasn't been easy for this pretty housepanther. It was evident right away that she was overwhelmed by the unfamiliar sights, sounds and smells that came with the experience. Nervous and scared, she would hiss, growl, and lash out when we would clean her cage or feed her. But something in her eyes told us she was open to trusting humans again.

And then, it began happening. Lucy would calmly smell our hands through her cage bars, and play with toys through them, too. And within the last two weeks, she has begun letting us volunteers pet her, and is hanging out with us when we visit! It also turns out that she is a catnip connoisseur. In a quiet and patient home, we are supremely confident that Lucy will blossom, and that her transformation into some lucky human's loving best friend will be complete. :)

Lucy is about 8 years old, spayed, micro-chipped, and current on her vaccinations. She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Now all she needs is someone to give her the chance she wants and deserves.

  1. How scared Lucy must have been! I'm glad her real temperament finally revealed itself - and I hope she finds a home for the holidays!

  25. It breaks my heart when cats are that fearful in the shelter system. I'm so glad you had the opportunity to let this pretty girl rest, relax and learn to trust.
